About The ArtistDavid Lamelas (b. 1946, Buenos Aires, Argentina; lives between Buenos Aires, Los Angeles, and Paris) is a pivotal artist within the histories of conceptual art and experimental film. He was a key figure within the Argentinian avant-garde during the 1960s, participating in landmark exhibitions at the Instituto Torcuato di Tella in Buenos Aires and representing Argentina at the Venice Biennale in 1968. He then studied at Saint Martin’s School of Art in London and showed his work in pioneering exhibitions of conceptual art throughout the 1970s in Europe and the United States. He moved to Los Angeles during the mid-1970s and since then has divided his time between the United States, Europe, and South America.
